Elizabeth Warren returning to Cascadia for February 22nd rally at Seattle Center

Hot on the heels of Bernie 2020’s announce­ment that it will hold a cam­paign ral­ly at the Taco­ma Dome on Pres­i­dents Day, Eliz­a­beth War­ren’s cam­paign has noti­fied our team at NPI that it has sched­uled a late Feb­ru­ary 2020 event of its own.

War­ren evi­dent­ly had such a good time at Seat­tle Cen­ter last sum­mer that she has decid­ed to return to those same stomp­ing grounds for anoth­er ral­ly. Since it’s Feb­ru­ary and not August, this event will be held indoors at the Seat­tle Cen­ter Armory, rather than out­doors near the Inter­na­tion­al Foun­tain like last time.

The ral­ly is open to the pub­lic and there is no cost to attend.

Sat­ur­day, Feb­ru­ary 22nd, 2020
6 PM Pacif­ic Time
Ral­ly in Wash­ing­ton with Eliz­a­beth War­ren
Seat­tle Cen­ter Armory
305 Har­ri­son Street
Seat­tle, WA, 98109

Doors will open at 4:30 PM. The speak­ing pro­gram will begin an hour and a half lat­er, at 6 PM, and con­clude at around 8 PM, the cam­paign says.

Entrance will be pro­vid­ed on a first-come, first-served basis. The Taco­ma Dome is ADA acces­si­ble and is able to accom­mo­date dif­fer­ent­ly abled per­sons.

No tick­et is need­ed, but the cam­paign asks that you RSVP if at all pos­si­ble.

You may RSVP using this link.

The Armory’s food and event hall is often used for ban­quets and recep­tions. Its ban­quet­ing capac­i­ty is 1,000 peo­ple and its recep­tion capac­i­ty is 2,500.

Since War­ren’s cam­paign plans to use it for a ral­ly instead of a ban­quet or recep­tion, it will prob­a­bly be able to accom­mo­date a high­er num­ber of peo­ple.

Plan to arrive ear­ly at Seat­tle Cen­ter if you want to be assured of get­ting in.

Seat­tle Cen­ter is well served by pub­lic trans­porta­tion, includ­ing the Seat­tle Cen­ter Mono­rail, which now accepts ORCA, and we urge you to take advan­tage.

Seat­tle Cen­ter has a trans­porta­tion logis­tics page with some impor­tant notes about find­ing park­ing and nav­i­gat­ing around KeyAre­na-relat­ed street clo­sures:

Please note that 1st Ave N Garage is now closed. Mer­cer Street Garage, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues North, and 5th Ave N Garage, between Repub­li­can and Har­ri­son streets, remain open for pub­lic use. Are­na con­struc­tion will start soon. For more infor­ma­tion on this trans­for­ma­tion­al project, vis­it: New Are­na at Seat­tle Cen­ter.

To avoid traf­fic slow­downs, con­sid­er all trans­porta­tion options as you route your way to and from Seat­tle Cen­ter. Sev­er­al Metro bus routes serve the Cen­ter, and Seat­tle Cen­ter Mono­rail pro­vides a speedy con­nec­tion between Seat­tle Cen­ter and the Sound Transit/Metro Sta­tion at West­lake, and with the new Har­ri­son St con­nec­tion to South lake Union, Seat­tle Street­car is also a walk­a­ble option. To learn more about traf­fic and road work in Seat­tle, vis­it: Seat­tle Traf­fic.

The SR-99 Tun­nel is now open. Down­town entrances/exits at Seneca St and West­ern Ave no longer exist. Dri­vers enter the tun­nel south­bound from 6th Ave N (just north of Har­ri­son St) and exit north­bound SR-99 at Repub­li­can St. Har­ri­son St is open across Auro­ra Ave N con­nect­ing Seat­tle Cen­ter and South Lake Union.

NPI plans to cov­er the ral­ly, so if you can­not go, you are wel­come to join us here on the Cas­ca­dia Advo­cate a week from today for spe­cial live cov­er­age.
